City wedding venues are often overlooked. Unwisely in my eyes. There are some magnificently creative and uber cool wedding venues out there in the hustle and bustle and they are often close to stunning old, listed Town Halls where you can hold your ceremony before hand. A great example is Rich Mix, a cinema and event space in London (image above).
Here are eight of the Truly Quirky City Wedding Venues that you will find hard to ignore. They are all booking now for 2020 and many have a few dates left in Autumn Winter 2019.
ONE | City Wedding Venue | London | The Siobhan Davies Dance Studio
“…there’s nothing conventional about Siobhan Davies’s new dance studio…” The Guardian
Unique studios built in 1898 as a school annex creating an unusual balance between old and new design. Architect Sarah Wigglesworth purposefully redesigned the building into a flexible event space in a sustainable and innovative way. Without erasing the footprint of the existing building was of the upmost importance.

TWO | City Wedding Venue | New York | Central Park
